This season we fall for the prettiest, healthiest polishes around!
Meet the newest wave in non-toxic nail polishes: "5-free." Cheeky Monkey, one of the non-toxic nail polish brands, has removed: formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate, and toluene from their mixes along with the allergens camphor and formaldehyde resin - all potentially dangerous ingredients that could do everything from disrupt your endocrine system to cause cancer. While the odds are slim that polishes containing these ingredients will hurt you (polish sits on top of your nails, which aren't made of living tissue, so it's not likely to be absorbed into the bloodstream), you could still get a whiff of the fumes or make contact with your skin while applying.
Would you like to try one of these amazing safe color on your nails? We hunted down a fantastic 5-free brand - Cheeky Monkey, along with our favorite color for each. Happy (safer) painting!
